Why I started Rocket-Tutor?

I love teaching and I do it passionately. I teach because I want to share my knowledge, my methods of learning which I devised when I was a student myself. Online tutoring provided me a platform not only to teach local students but share my knowledge globally.

One day back in 2013, I was tutoring a student on an online tutoring company. I was helping student with some problems. During the course of teaching him I came to know that the student has huge gaps in his learning. I told the student to learn the related topics related and then solve the problems. I even taught the topics. After a few days, the company blocked me on their platform because I violated their rules.

Lots of anger and questions filled me inside. I started thinking how I can help students in a better way. After pondering a lot, I decided to setup my own company where rules don’t hinder the learning of the student.  I started saving money after that for the company. I worked more than what I was working then. After saving money I quit my job and started developing the platform.

I saw many problems with the existing companies both from the student side and tutor side.

There was more needed to be done. The student needed to be tracked in a better way.

50-70% of the student in a classroom of 50 is not able to score more than 50-70 % in their exams. These students have immense concept gaps which not only hamper short term score but as well long term results.

From the tutor side, companies were not harnessing full potential of the tutors. So at rocket-tutor I am trying to solve these problems.
